after years of prodding, I finally get my buddies to come along to Downrigging Weekend
it is November, it is Halloween Weekend
the trees are wearing sweaters and even the Newfoundlands are wearing raincoats
it's a good day for ducks
The Silent Maid's flag (biggest.. one.. there...) and a foulies-clad sailor add color to the rainy waterfront.
I had booked a sail on schooner Sultana, but due to the unsavory (and unsafe for sailing) weather, sails were cancelled. We took some pics from the docks.
The crew of the Silent Maid hang onto summer as long as they can...
